Australia can transition from being the highest coal-based polluter per capita


Australia still has the dubious record of the highest levels of greenhouse gas pollution from coal/person - more than any other developed country - according the Ember report for 2021.

This, despite our emissions from coal having fallen to 4.04 tonnes of CO2 for each person from a previous level of 5.34, for 2015-2020.

BUT the single biggest action we can take to tackle the climate crisis, is to rapidly transition away from antiquated coal power.

The second-placed country was South Korea, with 3.18 tonnes a year, followed by China (3.06), South Africa (2.68) and the United States (2.23).

This article that almost a third of the ASX 300’s value is at risk in a carbon-constrained world, with new rules expected about disclosure, reinforces the importance of transitioning from fossil fuels.
